MK jeans have been my go to for years. With this new pair I did notice a change in the fabric. The denim is not as thick and I’m guess won’t hold up as long. Seems to be more a dress pair of jeans with a little stretch built in rather than ones that you would wear to do much work on the ranch in. The comfort and classic features remain though and I have worn them out several times to dinner, movies, etc.. Let’s hope they last as long as my others.
